As for the premier dragon company, isn't it typical for Chinese companies to have names unrelated to their business, but which sounds good to stick investees who wants to invest in IT?

Sounds like I should rename my current startup, frobx.ai to “Enormously Profitable in Multiple Lines of Business”

Well there was the famous example of Long Island Ice Tea's stock soaring when they renamed to Long Blockchain.

Ha, I was making a joke but that is an excellent real world example!

Well, frobx doesn't exactly roll off the tongue ;)
